On June 6, 2018 the Sullivan County Grand Jury handed down felony drug indictments on 28 individuals. These indictments came as a result of several extensive investigations that have been underway over the past two years by the Kingsport Police Department Vice and Narcotics Unit.

15 of these suspects have since been arrested on these indictments. Another 3 of these suspects were already in custody with other agencies on unrelated charges when the indictments were handed down and have been served accordingly. The final 10 individuals are still wanted and remain at large.
